One of my favorite bloggers is Texas Robert Hruzek, whose blog at Middle Zone Musings is always a treat. Each month, he runs blog contests and the WILF theme for December is What I Learned From the Generosity of Others. I have made so many new friends by writing these infrequent and often off-point blog posts that it is hard to know where to start. They have all have been generous because almost all of them have given of their time whenever I have had a question or a comment, no matter what the subject.
I especially have liked interacting with Dr. Ellen Weber and her associate Robyn McMaster, both are always ready with a kind word. As is Steve Roesler, of All Things Workplace and Rowan Manahan, my favorite Irish blogger. Izabella Tabarovsky has often ‘coached’ me although I don’t think she knew she was doing so…same with JT O’ Donnell, one of the creative bloggers I know and best business people. Jacob Share from Israel really gave me some great insights on how to organize a blog to make it even better. I wish mine were as good as his.
Dave Opton, the founder of ExecuNet has been generous with his kindnesses and encouragement, both have been very generous. Jason Alba stopped by our offices one evening some months back and gave a lot of us some very generous support and ideas on social media in general. Minnesota’s own headhunter, Paul Debettignies defines generosity with his time and support of the recruiting industry.
Brad Shorr was terrific to me in the last month or so, and was very helpful in my book writing project, even making one killer suggestion that made it a lot better. Liz Wolgemuth, the outside career voice editor at us news and world report was generous to even ask me to contribute and fellow contributors Michael Wade, Alison Green, Karen Burns, Curt Rosengren ..have all been very generous with their comments and ideas. All of us are doing what we can to help any US NEWS’ reader.
Penelope Trunk, Jacqui Tom, and Rebecca Thorman are all part of the HR world, and as younger generation bloggers have been generous with their advice and help as this babyboomer learns new lessons each day. Bloggers like Paul Epps simply give out golden posts.

In a week or so, my new book DIG YOUR JOB, will be released ( we hope) via Amazon and the above have generously indicated their willingness to help get the word out about the book. I appreciate their help as well as their willingness to help all of the people who now find themselves jobless. It is time to pull together…Robert’s idea of Generosity really is important these days.
